FAQ’s – Find the answers to common questions about Fiber-To-The-Home.
What is Fiber-To-The-Home?
Fiber-To-The-Home (FTTH) or also known as Fiber-To-The-Premises (FTTP), is a broadband delivery method that extends fiber-optic cables all the way to the home or business so the customers can have the best Internet experience.
How will Fiber-To-The-Home (FTTH) benefit me?
A FTTH connection provides the ability to access virtually unlimited bandwidth capacity and very fast internet speeds. FTTH enables you to have that better experience with higher data-using applications such as streaming Youtube, Netflix, and Hulu and for online games that prefer MMO or RPG’s. Fiber also increases overall service reliability and stability.
How is Fiber Optics better than what I have now?
Fiber is hair-like strands of glass that transmits pulses of light. It has the capability of transporting data distances without signal loss or interference. It can also transmit the signals in both directions simultaneously. This means it has the ability to download and upload at very high speeds. Copper is limited and cannot do many of the capabilities that fiber can.
